Lifelong Ohio State fan. Born and raised on the Ohio River on my grandfather's farm where I learned two important life lessons: 1, Always treat people how you'd want to be treated, even the people who mistreat you. 2, Three yards and a cloud of dust! One of my earliest memories as a child is wearing my scarlet and gray footie pajamas while watching OSU game replays on the local WOSU channel with my dad. I even remember Paul Warfield announcing. I grew up in southern Ohio and have lived all over the state including Chillicothe and Cleveland. I've been known to scream at the TV when Ohio State plays. I go all in every game hence why my screen name is IN ALL CAPS. When Ohio State loses I am sick to my stomach for several days afterward. When they win it's like freaking Christmas. I hate Michigan. I hate them more than Khan hated Captain Kirk. That Team Up North sucks. The SEC sucks. Go Bucks!

  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best personal sports moment was my 1 tackle in high school in the 1989 OHSAA Division IV state championship game at Ohio Stadium on the old field turf. To play an actual game on the same turf Woody walked on will always be the greatest sports moment of my life. That and OSU's 2002 national championship game win over Miami. I cried tears of utter joy after that win.

And the NFL wonders why its losing fans. The Raiders will be back in Oakland when Lake Mead dries up and Vegas becomes that zombie ghost town like in Fallout.

Eh, I actually find a Final Four of all No. 1 seeds about as boring a tournament as you can imagine.

Im tabbing Samuel as an Offensive Rookie of the Year candidate if he goes to either New Orleans or New England.

Teams should be required to announce those players wont play/show up days in advance so itll affect ticket sales enough the league does something about it. Teams dont disclose players arent playing for that very reason. They want to bilk the suckers who come to the game expecting to see the stars play.

Phi's meaning is which player, if they were to go down, would cause the biggest drop in the defense's overall performance by their absence. If Hill is our only true 1-tech DL and he goes out and causes opposing OLs to box up our DL AND LBs and all of a sudden we cannot stop the run, then its him. If Worley goes out and Browning isnt ready we suddenly have the inability to stop the power running AND screen passes like in the 2014 Orange Bowl. Hes a very close second. Third would have to be Ward. Hes the clear-cut leader of the secondary now and if he has a big 2017 is gone, too. I dont know how good Sheffield is nor know how much Arnette has improved either so that plays into it.

Foghorn Leghorn is looking good these days. TMZ isnt journalism its paparazzi. If Zeke gets arrested Ill start worrying. Were not going to win any titles without senior leaders. Glad Tyquan, JT, and Billy P all came back. Now if Schiano/Coombs can reload our secondary again and Wilson can make our passing game a threat then look out world.

Its not the losses that bother me, its how we've lost that edge we used to have that made this team so fun to watch, even in losses. During Aaron Crafts senior year we lost 10+ games but we were in most of them and we crushed some teams. This year we were one step from disaster on almost every game and we flat out got embarrassed. I mean seriously, how the hell do you lose to freaking Rutgers? Im beginning to believe its not the actual coaching. Its all recruiting. Thad isnt getting the guys with edges or chips on their shoulders anymore. The worst feeling I have is hes squeezing as much as he can with what hes got. If that is the case Im fearful were just going to get worse. Wouldnt be surprised if we lost 20 games next year.

Ive read Philadelphia Eagles fans weren't too happy with Davis and think he's a terrible LB coach then I realized it came from Eagles fans and I shrugged it off lol. Davis didn't get to be an assistant as long as he has if he didn't know what the hell he was doing. if anything he can help make our LBs a little more NFL ready than they already were, which is perfectly fine with me.

Its a sad world where the people who do the right thing get penalized. Ive been hard on Matta myself but one thing Ive always been proud of is how clean a program he runs. It appears part of his problem is he refuses to cater to the entitlement generation and their idiot coaches looking for kickbacks. Im still convinced we were cursed by Amir Williams though lol
